Vikeii of I.aureus in slate the action
Of the Chamber of Commerce and
what thai hotly wlshod from Clinton.
Tlii' was done brlelly and concisely,
ami was n>)lowed by a motion that
the Clinton league appoint coiuiuil
lei in confer with lite I.aureus com
mittee:;. Speaking on this motion,
Mr. .1. I'\ ubs, one of Clinton's
Wealthie i moll, while disclnililiiu;
iin> desire "In throw cold waler on
i '.? scheme." said thai the time was
mn ripe for such a stupendous under
talcing, that the amount of business
did um warrant it, and Hint instead
of llifl schoiiiG as proposed by the I.au
reus delegation that they petition Mr.
\V. IS. Childs of tbeColuinbin, New
liorry and I.aureus railroad to put
on a motor ?ervice between the two
towns, to run hourly, or to form a
$10,000 company, lease the track
from Mr. Childs and run the motor
ears. Mr, .laeobs stated thai he was
not ttuthori'/.cd to speak lor Mr.
Childs: in fact look pains to empha
size thai "ho was not representing
him ai all", but admitted Hull be had
bad a talk with Mr. Childs a b w min
utes before the meeting ami thai Mr.
Childs said he would grunt irack lease.
Mr. W. K Owens of Clinton seconded
M r. -l:.bs' Illol ion.
I The substitute scheme was ably
combat ted by a number or the Clinton |
business men ami by Missis. YV. I.
Cray. ?'. II. Itoper, I!. \. Cooper and
C ('. C alle r .tone of l.aureiis. The
burden of Mr. Jacobs' speeches was
I hat Clinton was under too great an
Obligation to Mr. Childs for their new
depot there to antagonize him by even
countenancing any scheme which
j would inaugurate a competition to
(lie C X. ? I., line. Hut. Prof. Spen
cer expressed the sentiment of Clinton
by snyillg that "if the building of that
depot b) Mr. Childs was to block the
wa> of progress ii were belt er never
io have been bnili". In other words:
"Clinton had not been bought with
ibis mess of pottage". Mr. Spencer's
words were greeted with loud ap
plause from the Clinton side of the
Messrs. I'Vnthorslonc and Cooper
very clearly ami conclusively showed
where the trolley tine would ill IIO
wise hurt Mr. Childs' business but
would rather lend lo build it up. say
ing that a line of this kind built a
new business for itself, which Indi
rectly helped .ii, business. Progress,
oven though ii Wim in competition was
not hurtful but healthy. Thou too,
the motor service as proposed hy Mr.
Jacobs would iini link the lour mills
at tlie two places and Ihc college, nor
cover the cily territories thai are
Sonic little feeling was caused by
a statement mad<> by Mr. Jacobs thai
Mr. Childs had told him thai three
Luurcns citizen, had said lo him
(Childs) that they had come down lo
Clinton io hnihl a road in order to
pUtlisIt llllll lor i it it giving Luurcns
better station and depol facilities.
Tills was allowed lo pass Oil its Ill's)
statement hu I when repealed by Mr,
Jacobs, it was questioned b> Dr. A ikon
who called lor the names of the three
gentlemen, Mr. Jacobs could no!
glvo (hem, but said he though! Mr,
W, li. (Sray was one of the three men;
whereupon Mr. dray was til one., mi
his feet and said: "If he said thai, he
lied". And Mr. (Sray went on io say
that he was and had always heen on
perfectly friendly terms with Mr
Childs, and (hui the though! of hurl
lug .Jr. Childs* business had never
entered his mind. "Or. Alken ttlxo
said that the attitude of Ihc Lsturens
people toward Mr. Childs was nothing
Inn Hie.idly and thai a scheue- to
"punish him was (be mcrcsl roily.
The substitute motion by Mr, Jacobs
was finally brought to a vote ami lost
by a I!) to _ count. Then the motion
to appoint committees lo confer with
the I.aureus committees was carried
hy a similar vote. Ilclicc tie' two
towns are a unit now on the scheme
and Immediate Kieps are being taken
lor a survey, ami the securing Ol
rights of way.
